This notebook has a typical black cover, but the spine is a wonderful orange which makes it easily recognizable in a group of other similar notebooks.
The paper is smooth and takes ink readily.
There is some showthrough, but it is very minor. There was no bleedthrough until I used my Namiki Falcon with the soft fine nib and Platinum Carbon black ink.
